Abstract Seascape, Abstract Mxed Media "Sea Rhythm" 6x8" SOLD

The sea is so fascinating to me.  I love the thought of all the life under the surface of the sea....movement as the waves are pulled to the shore, tiny sea creatures burrowing into the sand..........

SOLD




Jelly fish that look like man-made objects, balloons, or aliens...........



So many interesting and exciting things going on that we are totally unaware of.  All we see is the beautiful surface of the sea.

This piece is inspired by that thought.  The paint is an example of pouring technique, along with texture and metallic elements.  Although the metallic has photographed in a warm color, it is actually silver.  Much experimenting going on in my studio these days. Feel free to pin it!

Abstract Landscape, Abstract Sunset, "Mountain Sunset" 4x6" SOLD

I am just home from a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains, which inspired my painting for today.

SOLD

My goal was to reproduce the vibrant colors of the sunset with just a suggestion of mountain ridges.


I enjoy the thick application of paint and rough, unfinished texture in this piece.  It seems the more I paint, the more I move towards the abstract form.

This abstract landscape painting is a 4x6" on 1.5" gallery wrap canvas.  If you enjoy it, please pin it.

Mixed Media Abstract "Golden Marble" 4x12" SOLD

This is a fun technique  that Carol Nelson shared with us in her workshop last spring.  Carol, who is a "Golden Artist" as in Golden mediums and gels, is versed in techniques you and I have never thought about.  She is truely creative and a very charming and sharing person.

Purchase here
SOLD

 Carol developed this technique when she looked at her palette one day and thought it was as interesting as the piece she was working on.  So....she figured out how to turn her palette into a piece of art!  This is the first technique she shared with us in her workshop and it turned out to be a fun project and a great ice breaker!



She probably wouldn't mind if I told you how to do it, but I don't want to let the cat out of her bag.  Only Carol can tell!  Here is a link to her blog.  I know you will enjoy it and if you search through enough of her posts, she probably tells her secrets.  If you get to go to one of her workshops, I guarantee you will have a fun filled and informative few days with her.


Please pin it!

Abstract Mixed Media, 10x10 ,Poured Paint, "Shade of Blue"
